United States Search and Rescue Task Force Driving In Emergencies and Disasters Disaster driving! In times of emergency, people often react incorrectly, either staying with or abandoning their cars at the wrong time. This mistake, can be fatal. After almost every disaster, search and rescue teams find victims who might have survived if they had known whether to stay with or leave their cars during these times of emergency. The following are safety tips for drivers in various types of emergencies. This information should be kept in the glove compartment of your car. In any situation, the most important rule is to: "Remain Calm. Don't Panic!" Earthquake Stay in your car! Bring the car to a halt as soon as safely possible, then remain in the car until the shaking has stopped. The car's suspension system will make the car shake violently during the quake, but it is still a safe place to be. Avoid stopping near or under buildings, overpasses and utility wires. When the quaking has stopped, proceed cautiously, avoiding bridges and other elevated structures which might have been damaged by the quake and could be damaged further by aftershocks. Hurricane Evacuate early! Flooding can begin well before a hurricane nears land. Plan to evacuate early, and keep a full tank of gas during the hurricane season. Learn the best evacuation route before s storm forms, and make arrangements with friends or relatives inland to stay with them until the storm has passed.

A Weekend of Wind Storms
Metro Toronto Area Tornado-like winds caused destruction across southern Ontario yesterday. The sudden winds ripped balconies and roofs off buildings and uprooting trees from Kitchener to Wiarton. The winds at times ranged up to 140 km/h causing damage on the same scale as weak tornados. Environment Canada said the frenzied storms weren't tornados. The wind sliced across the province, striking hardest in Oakville and Guelph. In Guelph, the winds ripped the roof off a school where a church group was playing basketball. In Brampton, a sudden blast of wind lashed at homes and hydro wires, uprooting trees and causing property damage. No one was injured.

I really enjoyed reading this book with my class for information about tornadoes and hurricanes. The book presents many facts about these storms in a very kid friendly way. the format for the book is questions and answers. The book provides just enough information to keep it interesting for student readers. The pictures are not real, but are realistic. I like how the authors write a note in the beginning of the story inviting the reader to read their book. This book will be appealing for stud...

Twisters are tornadoes. I learned about them in the book Twisters by Will Osborne. Twisters wreak everything. Twisters can destroy homes because the winds go 300 miles per hour. They hit in the midwestern U.S. in April, May and June. I feel excited about this book because it's good to know about natural disasters so if it happens you'll be prepared.

Please show your support for this site and visit the sponsors Blizzard/Snow And Ice Storms Safety And Preparations You may live in the North where you are used to a fairly regularly scheduled winter season or you might be in the South where snow is a rare event. Either way, you may one day encounter a hazardous situation involving snow or freezing rain. Both can not only be dangerous, but fatal if you are not prepared. Be sure you always have on hand everything on the emergency supply list . Have one in your home and one in your car. You may also want a kit to leave at work and one for your kids at school. Usually there is enough warning that there is snow coming in your area. That is the time to make sure you are prepared for the worst, but don't worry too much. Most of the time snow is harmless. When snow becomes dangerous, these conditions may appear:
  • Over 1 foot of snow falling within 2 hours Snow mixed with rain Freezing rain that comes before or after snow Sudden temperature drops more than 10 degrees within an hour
  • These conditions are especially hard on very young children, senior citizens, and those with critical illnesses. If you are in that category, make sure you are in a safe place before the snow storm. The last thing you would want is to be stuck outside in the cold.

    Water Following a blizzard, get water to your livestock as soon as possible; their water need is critical. Cattle cannot satisfy all their water requirements by eating snow. In pastures with severe drifting, water in shallow streams may be absorbed by snow in the stream bed. Very little, if any, running water may be available for several days. You may need to haul water to cattle. Also, if water is limited, keep cattle off salt. Cattle which have been away from feed and water for several days may overeat salt, causing salt poisoning.
    Feed When stock cannot be reached by roads, use planes, helicopters or snowmobiles to provide emergency rations.
    Cattle Feedlot cattle that have gone through a severe storm or stress period should be put back on feed carefully. Change the ration gradually from a low to a high proportion of concentrate. Watch your herd carefully for several weeks following prolonged severe winter weather exposure. Isolate cattle that show signs of scouring or labored breathing. Keep these animals in a dry, draft-free place and contact a veterinarian.

    56. Chicago ''L''.org: Mishaps & Unusual Occurrences
    Weather/Natural disasters. The blizzard of 79 Although the blizzard of 1967 occurredpreviously, the blizzard of 79 was the first that crippled the L system
    Thankfully, the "L" does not have claim to the worst transportation disaster in Chicago (that dubious honor goes to the 1915 Eastland disaster in which 844 were killed when an excursion steamer capsized in the Chicago River) nor the worst train disaster (that happened in 1972 when two Illinois Central commuter trains collided at 27th Street, killing forty-five). But the "L" has had its share. It is also worth noting that many "L"-related mishaps are not the fault of the CTA or their predecessors at all, but rather Mother Nature. A fair number of crippling problems have resulted from heavy snowfalls and other nature-related mishaps. These are perhaps the most frustrating because it is difficult to be fully prepared for them and impossible to prevent them. Listed below are those incidents which could truly be called disasters in some way or another (and the term is, of course, high subjective). Each is linked to a page describing the incident, with an additional page listing those mishaps which, while disastrous in their own right, do not warrant a page all their own. : There seems to be a tendency in the United States to want to blow rail accidents out of proportion. For instance, after the Amtrak crash at Bourbannais, a vigorous discussion ensued about how unsafe rail travel is. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Winter Storm
    There are many kinds of winter storm. You probably already know those happening during the winter, like the snow storm and the ice storm.
    Snow Storm
    The temperature must be sufficiently cold for snow to fall and flakes to reach the ground. When winds blow heavily and you can not see before you, it means that a blizzard is blowing.

    Preparing for Natural Disaster With hurricanes in the news and twisters on the big screen everyone has natural disasters on the brain these days. Memories are fresh of the run on bottled water and toilet paper during the last blizzard. We all know the routine of extra water, fresh batteries, plenty of candles, and cupboards full of canned food, but there is one aspect that is often overlooked. When and if disaster strikes, there must be provisions for all members of the family, furry ones included. After big storms be extremely careful of downed power lines. When taking dogs for walks be sure to keep them close if lines are near and never let cats out if you see power lines down in the neighborhood. Be prepared during large snowstorms to dig pathways out for small dogs. Blizzards and electrical storms are the first that come to mind when thinking disaster, but there are many other events to be prepared for. As the D.C. metro area is surrounded by large roads and train lines it is hardly unthinkable that a hazardous spill could occur. In such a situation evacuation of homes would be likely. The following steps can be taken ahead of time to prepare for such an event:
